Excellent oyster selection and big variety in seafood. Good and friendly service and you could sit outside. Bring your own wine and enjoy a very nice atmosphere.

Always good but noisy inside. Not the place for an intimate dinner or people with hearing problems. Staff is very well trained & always pleasant. A neighborhood staple in our diets!

The reviews were great, but although the fish was fresh, the mixed grill special was floating in a pool of butter, the breads and salad were meh, and the seating for 2 was cramped. Service was prompt and friendly. If we lived closer to Princeton...More

Everything was terrific at this restaurant last night. We were seated promptly for our 8 o'clock reservation. If we wanted to sit outside it would have been a wait but we preferred indoors. Service was excellent and our server was most helpful especially in selecting...More

Nice selection of fresh seafood. Quality is good but prices are high considering this is a casual restaurant and the decor is nothing special. We came to the restaurant without a reservation and requested outside seating-the host was dismissive and rude. The food entrees came...More

One evening in Princeton and this was our restaurant of choice - and a great choice it was. Located on Nassau Street in the heart of Princeton, this casual neighborhood restaurant offers a very broad selection of fresh seafood, perfectly prepared. Our dinner was delicious!...More
